I was waiting for HID's but then decided to order a '19 without them. I don't do much rural driving anymore so I'm hoping I'll be OK without them.

Close, that's the "Easy Entry/Exit" feature. "Auto Advance 'n' Return" is where you can press a button on the B-pillar to move either front seat all the way forward to ease access to the middle row, then press it again to move the seat back to normal. I find it useful for installing car seats or removing/reinstalling middle row seats.

Curses, foiled by FCA Marketing-speak. Thanks

Same, I love both. I like using AAnR for when my kids climb into their car seats, especially since the EE/E feature backs up my driver's seat all the way back.

I thought that feature was available only on the gas vans to help with the middle seat stowage. It doesn't seem to have much practical use on Pachy.

It's not only on the non-hybrid, and it is useful, at least to me.

The middle seat in he hybrid sits a little bit forward of where it does in the gasser. When you have car seats in the middle row, its very difficult for an adult to get into the rear seats. I end up manually sliding a seat forward and then backwards in my '17 to let people in and out. When we had a rental gasser, it was surprsing how much more room there was between the first and second rows.

I really wish I had this feature.

I had a hard time finding a good deal in downstate Illinois so I found one at a dealership in California, had it professionally shipped and still came out $2500 ahead of the best deal in the state! They have tons of them in Cali!

It's not as though they are pre-selling them and just delivering them when they arrive. Is it a lack of profitability? Are they difficult to maintain in inventory? Is there a lack of interest by vehicle shoppers?
I think there are a few factors going on. First, many people donít want to give up the Stow-&-Go second row seats which is a huge feature of the Pacifica. Second, this is a PHEV and a big benefit to that is plugging it in and getting up 32 miles on electricity alone, but many folks either donít have that convenience of a plug nearby or just donít want to bother. Thirdly, here in California most of our electricity is from ďcleanĒ sources (hydro-electricity), not so in many other areas in the east and mid-west. And the consumer cost, while not cheap, is often less than other parts of the country.

BTW; I just checked the dealer nearby us where I got my gas 2017 Pacifica Limited and they currently have 9 PHEVs in stock (Tuttle-Click Chrysler in Irvine, CA - Orange County). But then we are a huge target market for EVs and PHEVs. Teslas and EVs in general are very common here.

Here in the Minneapolis area there are only a handful of Hybrids in stock, none of which are priced very well. I think itís likely that Iíll end up traveling out east to buy one.

Take away the government subsidies and see how many are available then. Probably a lot. Or just wait 10 years from now and you will be able to buy a used one for $1,000.
